    Skin Cancer??

    I have no idea what's going on. I have super itchy patches of discolored skin. They almost look like bruises and some are red. Some feel like dry skin, others don't (they feel normal). I've looked at a bunch of images of skin cancer and it doesn't match, but it seems extreme for dry skin. I've always had dry skin but this has never happened. It's been getting steadily worse for about a year and went from one patch to this (pictures attached) on my ribs. It acts up the worst....

  • Suspicious Freckle on Hand

    About two years ago, I noticed a new freckle on the palm of my hand. It is about 2 mm long and 1 mm wide. It has darkened a bit, but it's remained around the same size. It only appears dark in the ridges of the palm, but not in between, making two small lines. It seems completely flat. I know this can't be diagnosed without seeing a professional, but what could this be other than cancer, and what should I ask a doctor about?

    Cancer scare

    Back in February they found microscopic hematuria in my urine. They sent me to a urologist. They did a rectal exam, psa blood test, a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis area, and a cystocopy. They said they found nothing. That I was cleared of cancer. Then every time I have a pain or weird symptom I think they missed something and run to the doctor. They say I'm suffering from health anxiety and put me on effexor xr 37.5mg. They upped it to 75mg a few weeks ago. I've been having dizzy spells....
